Illegal Zimbabwean immigrants arrested in SA
ABOUT 14 Zimbabwean illegal immigrants have been arrested by SA traffic police in Limpopo, along the N1 near Mokopane , while travelling in a mini bus to Johannesburg.
The minibus, which had about 31 passengers, of which 14 in the bus were found to be illegally in the country.
“We are taking this matter very seriously from the fact that this kombi was overloaded and we cannot condone this kind of behaviour,” says traffic spokesperson Joshua Kwapa.
“We will ensure that we get a positive conviction on this matter because we have been talking about foreign nationals coming into this country and disobeying the rules of the road,” he says adding officials from the Department of Home Affairs had been called in to deal with the illegal immigrants.
Most Zimbabweans both legal and illegal are travelling back to SA, on the N1 after having visited home during the festive season. – ZimsInSA.com reporter
